Weglein Invited as Keynote Speaker at Global Congress on Physics and Its Applications

Keynote to Address Advances in Fundamental Directed Seismic Physics Research

Arthur Weglein, the Hugh Roy and Lillie Cranz Cullen Distinguished University Chair in Physics at University of Houston, will deliver an invited keynote presentation at the Global Congress on Physics and its Applications (GCPA). The conference, scheduled for March 21-23, 2024, will be held in Rome.

Arthur Weglein

Weglein, the founding director of the Mission-Oriented Seismic Research Program at UH, will present “Advances in Fundamental Directed Seismic Physics Research: Translational Opportunities in Other Areas of Inverse Scattering/Target Identification.”

GCPA 2024’s objective is to provide a unique platform for discussing the most recent innovations, practical challenges encountered, and solutions adopted in physics.

A frequent keynote speaker at international research and business conferences, Weglein’s previous presentations have covered a variety of topics, including on-shore challenges, primaries and multiples in seismic processing, defining and addressing seismic challenges in petroleum exploration and production, and potential game-changing seismic research, seismic migration and inversion.

In 2016, he received SEG’s highest honor and recognition, the Maurice Ewing Medal. SEG also presented the Reginald Fessenden Medal to Weglein in 2010 for his contributions to exploration seismology. In 2008, he received the Townsend Harris Medal, the highest honor from CCNY/CUNY. He served as the SEG Distinguished Lecturer in 2003.

Weglein has served as co-editor-in-chief, along with Nafi Toksoz of MIT, of the Journal of Seismic Exploration since 2018.
